Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Week 10 - 15 : Resources and buildable structures

About Terminus Est with 0 comments by ScarabGames on Aug 30th, 2014

Hello World!

Yes it's been a while since the last update. While I was forced out of the apartment due to unbearable heat ( Having no windows that can be opened isn't exactly helping either ) I realised that I would rather make updates when things are ready to be shown rather than forcing myself to show content each week that may or may not be half broken.

Since the last update I have been working on some key gameplay features :

Resources

At the beginning of each battle, resources are scattered underground randomly in clusters. Players will need to explore the battlefield, find the resources and extract them. A fraction of the resources extracted are distributed to each player while the rest is stored as team resources. What the team resources are used for will be fleshed out in a later update. Once players have extracted all the resources in a specific location, new resources will appear in a new random location. Resources also get slowly depleted over time even when they aren't being harvested.

Structures

Players will be able to build various structures that each will have their own specific purpose. The resource extractor is built on top of resource locations and as the name implies, it extracts the resources. So far there is only a prototype of the resources extractor and the light structure which is useful at night time. The light structure is only available for GNA, the other two factions will solve night time in other ways. Each player can only build one instance of each structure type. If a player tries to build a structure they have already built, they will instead relocate the existing building.

I have also created :

  • Satellite feed minimap
  • Improved terrain
  • Improved dynamic clouds
  • Improved global fog
  • All sky and weather features is no longer a local effect but controlled by the server
  • The build tool for placing structures

You can see it all in motion right here :

Feedback is appreciated! =)
See you next week!

There are better-looking ones but they aren't as dev-friendly, so Unity might also be my fave 3d engine :D

Highest Rated (6 agree) 7/10

The advantages of Unity are: +You can build for nearly all major plattforms +Easy to learn +Great assets pipeline, which supports most 3D packages +Great and helpful community and hundreds of useful tutorials +Good documentation +A big fund as backbone. So this engine will be further developed and getting better +one of the most optimized mobile engines So why I give only 7 out of 10? Well, Unity has unfortunately some really weak points: -Basic version is free. But if you serious about game development…

Hours of work lost...
I've been slaving away for about 5 hours creating my game when I suddenly got "Unity Editor has stopped responding". What a waste...
